Spring 2017 Final Thesis Submission Deadline:
Monday, March 27, 5:00 p.m.
Beginning January 2017, students completing master's theses are no longer required to provide the Madden Library with a hardbound copy. Students may opt instead to submit their thesis electronically to ProQuest. (Students not wishing to make their thesis available electronically must still provide a bound copy.) Read complete revised Madden Library policy for bound theses.
Follow the steps below to submit your thesis for Spring 2017.
STEP 1: You must indicate your intent to submit your dissertation or thesis by registering

STEP 2: Only properly formatted dissertations/theses (see below for guidelines and templates) with approval of all committee members will be accepted for review. Plan ahead. Secure approval in advance of the deadline.

STEP 3: Once the DTO has received your registration information and approval from your chair and committee, you will be notified by email that a personal review folio has been created for you in Blackboard. You will then need to upload your approved dissertation or thesis to that folio to commence review.
